Arrow Riders earnings Motogp

All the MotoGP rider salaries

Nearly everyone is curious about how much money the MotoGP stars earn each year.* Whether it be as fodder for conversation at the local bar, an internet forum debate, or even a comparison to athletes from other sports, there is something fascinating about the numbers.
*
Below we have compiled a rough list, based on what information is available (and some of it is kept well under wraps), of what the riders in MotoGP earn, and how they earn it.* So first there is a distinction to be made between their three principle sources of income: salary, technical sponsors and personal sponsors.
The salary is simply what the manufacturer or team pays the rider to race.* It is a gross sum, and there is no standard for the method in which it is paid out.* Most commonly the riders get paid in three installments, generally 30% at the start of the season, 30% halfway through, and the remainder at the conclusion.
Technical sponsors are generally comprised of the leathers, helmet and boots worn by the rider, while personal sponsors are any other organization (generally non bike related) that wishes to tie their image in with that of the rider.
Here are the rankings for the MotoGP rider salaries, calculated based on their wages for this year and in light of their 2011 earnings prospects:
1.*** Valentino Rossi : from 12 to 15 million Euro
2.*** Jorge Lorenzo: from 4 to 7 million Euro
3.*** Casey Stoner: from 5 to 7 million Euro
4.*** Dani Pedrosa: from 3 to 4 million Euro
5.*** Andrea Dovizioso: from 1.5 to 2 million Euro
6.*** Marco Simoncelli: from 1.5 to 2 million Euro
7.*** Loris Capirossi: 1.5 million Euro
8.*** Ben Spies: from 1 to 2 million Euro
9.*** Alvaro Bautista: 1 million Euro
10.*** Randy De Puniet: from 500 thousand Euro to 1.2 million (if he goes to Suzuki)
11.*** Marco Melandri: 500 thousand Euro
12.*** Mika Kallio: 350 thousand Euro
13.*** Colin Edwards: 250 thousand Euro
14.*** Aleix Espargaro: 250 thousand Euro
*
Moto2: Andrea Iannone 200 thousand Euro, 125 Marc Marquez 200 thousand Euro
*
The value of a technical sponsor for a medium-high/high level rider:
Helmet: 200/600 thousand Euro
Leathers: 250/500 thousand Euro
Boots: 100/200 thousand Euro
The personal sponsorships are added on top of this, with their value depending a lot on the rider in question.
As an example, the Fastweb sponsorship for Valentino Rossi is said to be worth between 500 thousand and a million Euro annually.

Where's Nick? Honda paid him over 2 mil, Ducati was at 1 mil I thought.

Wow didn't even notice Nicky was missing. If they revealed that to you they would have to kill you? Who knows?

I wonder if Nicks salary will go down after Rossi signs. You know what that means gotta sell more Ducati swag. I swear Harley Davidson and Ducati are the same in that respect, they both market themselves the same way with some serious finacial results. The Japanese have not quite mastered that one yet.

Yep, he'll make less to keep the Factory seat. As for salary, I have many Ducati dealer buddies that are close to Michael Lock and when he originally signed it was over $1mil. DNA asked the dealers if signing Nick would be worth it and they thought that the marketing would make it worth it. So, DNA pitched in for part of the salary for the corse team. I'm not sure of the total, but over $1mil for season 1 for sure. This season is probably less since he struggled, but bet on $500-$800k for 2011.

After so many failed riders on that seat you'd think Ducati would be stoked to get such a great rider. He's done what others before him have gave up on, I give him alot of respect for sticking with it. I think he'll fair much better on the 1000's as he did with the 990's.
